. >> right. a new report from brown university says the total cost of the war in iraq has been $2.2 trillion. the cost can double or triple when you take interest payments into account. why is it that your republican colleagues don't ever talk about this when they talk about our debt? they never mention this tremendous part of that debt. >> one thing that was so frustrating to a lot of democrats who consider ourselves to be fiscally responsible is of course, you had the bush tax cuts. then right after, you had the attacks on september 11th and you had the war on afghanistan, which i supported and almost all of the members of congress did, because those were the people that attacked us. but then, you had the war in iraq and both afghanistan and iraq were fought as quote emergencies, which means they weren't included in the annual deficits. so, now, when they're talking about a budget that cuts student loan programs for gi members, people coming back from iraq and afghanistan now they're not getting their student loans. because this was all fought off budget. i think that's political malpracti
stopped is black or brown. >> 80% of stop and frisk. >> more than that. something like 87%. not only that, even in the white neighborhoods, it is all minorities that are being stopped and frisked. there's no denying that this racial profiling going on here. and add to the pact that almost everybody who is being stopped, almost 700,000 in one year alone, almost everybody being stopped, has done absolutely nothing wrong. this is -- you know, this is not america. this is not democratic. >> confirmation after lot of this that we have been saying. this is perhaps a useful policing tool that's been misused and abused. that's occurred for years. so when you start to stop people based on purely what they look like and who they are, as you said, more than 9 on% of the people are black and hispanic. >> i think it is useful to be improve pd we need intensive training of a police officer of what the appropriate constitutional methodology is of stop and frisk. assign them to patrols and interact with the community. they will trust. thirdly, i think we need to regulate, tax and legalize marijuana so th
. a new report from brown university, the cost of war study, proves just how wrong that early promise was. the cost in lives was of course overwhelming and far more than predicted. in total, more than 190,000 people lost their lives due to the war. 70% of them were iraqi civilians. that's 190,000 people dead. to give you an idea of the enormity of that number, enough people died in that war to fill yankee stadium. there it is. every seat of that stadium four times. and the cost of the iraq war was the other con job, the financial cost sold to the american people. the brown university study estimates the iraq war did eventually cost this country over $2 trillion. $2.2 trillion. hardly the price tag they were pushing in the beginning. michael hastings writes for "buzz feed" and covered the iraq war for "rolling stone" and wrote a book about it. "i lost my love in baghdad." which is a personal story. his latest book is "panic" about the 2012 election. paul rieckhoff, executive director and founder of the iraq and afghanistan veterans of america. from 2003 to 2004 he served as army first lieu
that. i just ran into scott brown, former republican senator. he went last year. he was one of only two of all republicans who were invited. we can't figure out if this is a reaching across the aisle or just a lot of money for a st. patrick's day party. >>brian: you know what's going on? it's fascinating to watch. you had a cbs reporter ask the president how much does it cost to travel to your campaign event in chicago and then follow follow up? yesterday, two days ago we heard, mr. president, why are you taking a vacation if everybody else is cutting back? how much does your vacation cost? now you see him having a saint patty's day celebration and he can't get out in front of it because he's taking away things like yellowstone park and white house tours. >>steve: and that was delicious beer. it is awfully early. i'm going to wait till noon. some of the famous democrats in attendance last night: chris mathews, patrick leahy, and governor o'malley. they were all invited to the white house where they were guarded by some of those secret service guys who used to do the white house tours.
records on civil rights and over time, particularly with decisions like brown that were, of course, unanimous for many republicans eventually it became a permission structure. that's why the entire caucus starts voting for the voting rights act and other things. it's a checkered history so i don't mean to simplify it. but if the court goes federal here, i do think it would actually take some of this out of the political space, which could be good if you care about human rights. >> the a-team. alex wagner and ari melber, thank you both for joining me. >> thanks, lawrence. >>> coming up, tina fey's return to her alaskan roots and the man, the only man who could get her to go back. conservative. very logical thinker. (laughs) i'm telling you right now, the girl back at home would absolutely not have taken a zip line in the jungle. (screams) i'm really glad that girl stayed at home. vo: expedia helps 30 million travelers a month find what they're looking for. one traveler at a time. expedia. find yours. olay ultra moisture body wash can with more moisturizers than seven bottles of the
that have been ignored for years. in my case, it was a brown fill site where a lot of african-american families, 3 b300 families had been moved on to this site. it was a toxic dump. nobody had done anything about it. i started working hard -- >> you got government to fix it? >> i started working hard to get it relocated and once republicans and democrats in washington found out what happened, they worked on it and it was a pretty -- harold ford jr. the first time he met me on the floor what you're doing down in florida is land mark. what have you done and how did you get to it? i said i just went into the community. i didn't have to go vote for higher taxes or do these things that i was against idle lodeol y ideologically. >> what you did is called environmental justice. >> right. >> if you had gone to cpac and said words environmental justice, what sort of reception would you have gotten? it fi had gone to cpac and said you know what i did? i found 300 families that had been moved on top of a brown stone site, brown-filled site and their young children your reasoning around o
and not dark people or brown people from the south. how can you say you're basically for racialization of america, that whites should be welcome, but not other people. >> it's a mystery -- sorry. go ahead. >> i think what's the story is the evolution of cpac. it's so much the evolution of the republican party. it used to be a conference that attracted very, very conservative figures. now more and more you've seeing mainstream people i think that's very scary for republican parties, especially members and consultants who want to win again down the line. >>> here's sarah palin talking about something a bit you might say off-color, but it's her way of being funny and a bit of a redneck. >> you should have seen what todd got me. it wasn't that exciting, a metal rack, case for hunting rifle to put on the back of a four-wheeler, and then i had to get something for him to put in the gun case, right? so this go-around he's got the rifle. i got the rack. >> so that's how it's done, ron. liberals can't talk like that. conservativ conservatives, people on the wacko right can talk like that. i gue
was thrown into sharp relief as brian brown, president of the national organization for marriage found himself voicing opposition to gay marriage in front of an empty room. memo to republicans and actually anyone on planet earth -- if you find yourself making an argument to a room full of empty chairs, it might be time to change your strategy. james, i want to go you first on this, given your storied past. a column in the "washington post" yesterday said clinton's announ announcements moves the ball significantly in confirming that no democratic presidential candidate will ever be viable, she's sending a strong member to the court is that americans are ready to embrace it. >> i think it's not unexpected. to say the least. and i do think it does send a signal, no one is going to run for the democratic nomination that doesn't embrace marriage equality. i would just point out that republicans do have some experience talking to empty chairs. so -- >> that is bad i totally missed the joke. >> all the republicans that signed the supreme court brief, do a little exercise and see how many of t
. and at least 134,000 iraqi civilians died in that conflict. the cost of war projected at brown university puts the current cost of the iraq war at $1.7 trillion. and estimates that total expenses will soar to $6 trillion over the next 40 years. now the lasting effect of the conflict and the misleading information that was used to justify it is still being felt today in washington. as our first read team points out, the iraq war is the most consequential political event of the past ten years, and probably beyond. joining me now, nbc news foreign correspondent. we have michael smerconish, military analyst general barry mccaffrey, and the first iraq war veteran to serve in congress. let's start with you here, general. as we look at what's happening at the moment, these attacks in shiite districts largely believed to be linked to suny militants, linked to al qaeda. what would you say the magazine any to do of the situation is? >> compared to the mayhem that was going on during the fighting for fallujah, it is relatively moderate. what we have going on in iraq now is the shia plurality, dominating
decide to change the messaging on this. we saw paul brown now making some trouble saying that the paul ryan budget isn't conservative enough. he's running for the senate in georgia. if he's going to say that the ryan budget doesn't cut enough and starts pulling people off of even the ryan budget, well, you know, that is going to be some very, very tricky politics for the republican party and something the democrats will use against them in places that are competitive. >> now, tricky politics, republicans no question on the ryan budget and budgeting in general. tricky politics on guns for democrats. now, the assault weapons ban stripped out of the broader senate bill, harry reid has taken some flak for that. joe biden yesterday, the vice president of the united states who has taken a lead role on this, on npr talking about the assault weapons ban and whether or not it is doomed. let's play that and we'll talk about it. >> we are still pushing that it pass. the same thing was told to me when the first assault weapons ban in 'now was attached to the biden crime bill, that it couldn't poss
's an equal right. it struck down equal in the brown v. board case. we don't want separate, but equal. we just want equal, nothing more, nothing less. >> victoria, this week we had senator portman talking about changing his position in effect because a member of his family came out and that affected his view. is this, in a sense, a demographic movement that however much people may oppose is literally like a wave that will eventually sweep over? >> martin, earlier this week the pugh center came out with a poll showing that a third of people who are now in favor of gay marriage change their position. so they had previously been against it and now they're for it and what happens is when you get to know somebody on a personal level the stereo typical contexts start to fade away and you start to look at that person as who they are and you don't look at the stigma attacked to their group. rob portman, classic case and it's a textbook case of intergroup contact theory where the more contact you have, not just by saying i know somebody, i know the cousin of a friend or my gardener or my busboy is this
would be stopping the pipeline of young, you know, black and brown males directly into the penal system out of middle school. and, you know, i think that's probably a really good start in terms of, you know, making some reasonable impact on our, you know, overcriminalization, overincarceration of young men. i don't know, however, that it would galvanize or bring any more of those young men to his fold given his other stances. as angela said, records do matter and hand paul has quite an extensive one. >> i'm thinking there might be some voters who would give the republican party a second look on that one. hogan, so speaking of your party, and the loss last year, mitt romney, he's announced that he's going to hold a summit for business and political leaders this summer in park city, utah. his former running mate, paul ryan, and chris christie, will also be there. so is this romney trying to be the king maker? >> that's a great question, too. i don't know. i can't see it happen even if he wanted to be. could you imagine the first nominee we put forth would be made the nominee by a mitt rom
'm a ron brown democrat, and i remember when he told me, when the democrats are in the wilderness, it's never as good as you think and it's never at bad. the republican party can rally around and bring minorities and women to the table, but it's about actions and deeds. when you have people out there doing the type of things that, for example, the leader, mcconnell, was doing or some of the leadership in the house of representatives, it's not about words. those words, those 97 pages, that must have been the abridged version. it must be a much longer dissertation to understand really what their problems is. but at the end of the day, it's about actions and deeds. i believe my republican brother and i have a lot of great friends on the republican party. i believe they can turn it around. but it gets down to, craig, actions and deeds. when you show great actions and you do great deeds, people will rally around you. >> i thought you were about to say -- >> i want your friends too. >> i thought he was about to say, i have republicans over to my house all the time. >> they always come over
